Marseille face competition from Tottenham Hotspur to sign Florian Thauvin from Newcastle United, according to a report.

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want to bring Newcastle United flop Florian Thauvin back to the Premier League during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old failed to make an impression during his four months at St James' Park in 2015 and was sent back to former club Marseille on loan.

After making 14 appearances in Ligue 1 for Les Phoceens during his initial spell, all three parties agreed to extend the terms of his loan agreement until the end of this campaign.

Marseille are said to be interested in making that a permanent deal, having impressed with 12 goals and nine assists this term, but French outlet RMC Sport suggests that Tottenham are looking to hijack a move.

It is claimed that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of the winger and is prepared to go head-to-head with Marseille for his signature.
